Saturday in the Park

August 29, 2021

Almost every Saturday the Dallas Uptown Team evangelizes in downtown Dallas near the major cultural landmarks and tourist attractions of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and Klyde Warren Park.

This past Saturday was no exception.  Our members from Mater Dei, the FSSP Latin Mass parish in Dallas, situated our table between a lemonade stand and an elote cart.  We were perfectly positioned to greet all comers in the shade of a broad sidewalk across from the food trucks lining the Southern boundary of Klyde Warren Park.

We had many good casual conversations with Catholics and non-Catholics alike.  We make it a point to meet people where they are in their journey to God through careful listening and sometimes pointed questioning.  Our goal is for people to wake up to their need for God’s mercy and then to take the necessary steps to obtain that mercy.   The best part this week was when a Protestant young man came up to us and asked us to pray for him and when we encouraged a young girl to pray the Rosary with her mother.


We will have many more stories to come. Stay tuned.
